Police sought a woman and her three children Wednesday after receiving a call about the suspicious death of a man in his 30's inside the family's home in a gated Carlsbad community.
The death in the 2400 block of Badger Lane east of the Rancho Carlsbad Golf Course was reported just after 11 p.m. Tuesday, according to Carlsbad police.
No specifics about the death were immediately released but police said they were looking for Julie Harper and her three young children. Police said she was not a suspect, as of 8 a.m., and did not disclose her relationship, if any, to the deceased.

Throughout the morning, detectives were spotted carrying brown bags out of the family's home. A neighbor said the residence was home to a family of five. Neighbors told reporters Harper is a real estate broker.
A homicide investigation is ongoing. The deceased male was released to the medical examiner for further investigation and identification.
